Plot: Miss Luckmoore (Fatma Mohamed) is a shop assistant at a big department store. But ther is something else going on in the store than your usual shopping experience. Miss Luckmoore does sell a dress, though. In fact, she sells the same dress to several women. A cursed dress that spells trouble for all of the women who buy it.
In Fabric is a weird film, in a very special, entertaining and enchanting way. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it from its horror to its absurd sense of humor.
The Field Guide to Evil collects eight different segments from eight different countries that all build from a local legend. As usual with anthology films, Field Guide to Evil is a mixed bag of beans. There are some very good segments, but also some that didn’t really work for me. But I would say, it’s worth seeing because the good parts are really very good.
Gilderoy (Toby Jones) is an English sound technician who has been hired to work on an Italian horror movie. Only that he didn’t know that it was a horror movie, doesn’t speak Italian and the entire company is more than weird. It starts with the apparent impossibility of getting his ticket reimbursed, continues with the eternal rudeness of his boss Francesco (Cosimo Fusco) to the irregular and disruptive appearances of the director Santini (Antonio Mancino). And Gilderoy gets sucked into the movie and this world more and more.
Berberian Sound Studio is an homage to Giallo movies, something I can only parrot here because I never actually saw one. But even when you don’t really have that connection, the film stands pretty well on its own, at least if you like the mindfuckery of Lynch-movies.
